Amy Kjose Biography

Title:
Director of the Civil Justice Task Force at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
Reasoning:

“Renewable energy sources have a place in America‚Äôs energy equation… Renewables currently can seldom compete with other ways of generation electricity. They are a luxury good. People who want to pay a premium to get wind power or solar power
should be able to do so, but the costs of wind power should not be forced on all electrical consumers.”
